Posted on

ABC’s fall trailers are here: Below, get your first look at The Muppets, Shondaland drama The Catch, Don Johnson’s Oil, and more.

The Muppets returns to prime time with a contemporary, documentary-style show. For the first time ever, the series will explore the Muppets’ personal lives and relationships, both at home and at work, as well as romances, break-ups, achievements, disappointments, wants and desires—a more adult Muppet show, for kids of all ages.

Shonda Rhimes’ The Catch is a new thriller centered on the successful Alice Martin (Mirelle Enos). She’s a fraud investigator who’s about to be the victim of fraud by her fiancé (Damon Dayoub). Between her cases, she is determined to find him before it ruins her career.

Oil tells the story of Billy and Cody Lefever, who dream of a new life beyond their working class roots and move to “The Bakken” in North Dakota—which is booming after the biggest oil discovery in American history. They’re soon pitted against a ruthless tycoon who forces them to bet big and put everything on the line, including their marriage. Josh Pate and Rodes Fishburne will write and executive-produce with Don Johnson, Tony Krantz and Drew Comins.

Wicked City follows a different noteworthy era of LA history each season. The True Detective-style format starts with a murder case from 1982 centered on the rock and roll, cocaine-infused revelry of the Sunset Strip. Alliances are formed between detectives, reporters, drug dealers and club-goers to solve a serial murder case.

Quantico tells the story of a diverse group of recruits who have arrived at the FBI Quantico Base for training. They are the best, the brightest and the most vetted—so it seems impossible that one of them is suspected of masterminding the biggest attack on New York City since 9/11.

The Real O’Neals is a contemporary take on a seemingly perfect Catholic family, whose lives take an unexpected turn when surprising truths are revealed. Instead of ruining their family, the honesty triggers a new, messier chapter where everyone stops pretending to be perfect and actually starts being real.

Dr. Ken stars Community‘s Ken Jeong as Dr. Ken, a brilliant physician with no bedside manner. He is always trying to be a good doctor, as well as a good husband and dad to his two kids. However, these good intentions have a way of driving everyone crazy both at work and at home. Luckily, his therapist wife Allison is just the right partner to keep things sane.

The Family, formerly titled Original Sin, is a thriller that follows the return of a politician’s (Joan Allen) young son (Liam James) who was presumed dead after disappearing over a decade earlier. As the mysterious young man is welcomed back into his family, suspicions emerge — is he really who he says he is?

Of Kings and Prophets is an epic Biblical saga of faith, ambition and betrayal told through the eyes of a battle-weary king, a powerful and resentful prophet, and a resourceful young shepherd on a collision course with destiny.

Based on the John Candy movie of the same name, Uncle Buck stars Mike Epps as a fun-loving but irresponsible guy who needs a job and a place to stay. By happy coincidence, his nieces and nephew’s Nanny has just quit and his brother and sister-in-law need his help. His unconventional personality just may make him the right fit for the family, and they may be the answer to his problems, too.
